The new EU envoy to Nigeria, Ambassador Ketil Karlsen, has expressed the desire of the union to support the Nigerian government in creating employment opportunities for young Nigerians. He said that creating employment opportunities for Nigerians would discourage them from embarking on dangerous trips to European countries.

It was reported that the European Union’s pledge of assistance comes against the backdrop of the increasing rate of young Nigerians embarking on dangerous trips to European countries in a bid to secure better living conditions. Karlsen, who is the Head and Ambassador of the European Union Delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS, said the union was eager to support Nigeria to facilitate a better future for youths.

He argued that it was imperative to create better living conditions for young Nigerians to reduce their desperation for migration abroad. The envoy said that young Nigerians should not be allowed to continuously expose themselves to dangers and abuses in their bids to travel to Europe and other countries. “I think that we need to work together, create more investments and job opportunities for these young Nigerians in their communities. We have to make these young Nigerians know that there are currently better opportunities for them in their country than abroad,” Karlsen said.
